  •  Of course, this is broad, right? (3+ / 0-)

    So pharmacists who don't believe in Viagra don't have to dispense it?

    Pharmacists who think that children are overmedicated don't have to dispense ADD meds or statins?

    Doctors who think it is wasteful for old, evil men to have heart surgery don't have to mention it?

    Doctors who think that prescribing pain medications interferes with God's will don't have to and can't be fired?

    Pharmacists can refuse to dispense drugs made by Particular Big Evil Drug Company?

    Heck, I could go to pharmacy school, get a job, declare myself a Christian Scientist, and refuse to dispense any medication on religious grounds. Ha ha, can't fire me!

    I realize this is code for "punish women for having sex" but there's no reason the consequences and issues are restricted to that topic.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
